    He is a pretty boy and does have the shape of a orpington----but he for sure might be crossed.

    When I saw him, I thought:Holy mackerel!I think that's a RIRXBO!
    Could be anything though, really....

    No feathers on his feet .

    Seems like my suspicion was correct .

    I've been looking at photo's of orpington mixes, and the ones that look the most mine are RIRxorp and New hampshire x orp
